On Sunday, Fox News’ Harris Faulkner retweeted an intriguing question: “Where is your senator” as the shutdown looms?

Enter #BlameHarryReid. Legal Insurrection put the blame where it should be: At the feet of Sen. Harry Reid. “Hostage-holders“? Look in the mirror, Harry:

More from Legal Insurrection:

Harry Reid almost never allows up or down votes on Republican agenda legislation coming out of the House. He has taken the Senate hostage.

A good example is the House Continuing Resolution which Reid would not allow to come up for a vote until Obamacare defunding was stripped out. He could have allowed a vote on the entire bill — which Ted Cruz said would have satisfied him — but Reid held the nation hostage.

Nailed. It.

NRO’s Charles C.W. Cooke agrees.

And citizens on Twitter are also putting the blame where it belongs. Own it, Sen. Reid.

An early win?

Keep it coming, Twitter.


More please.
